The genetic diversity, population structure, and linkage disequilibrium (LD) of peaches are greatly important in genome-wide association mapping. In the current study, 104 peach landrace accessions from six Chinese geographical regions were evaluated for fruit and phenological period. The accessions were genotyped with 53 genome-wide simple sequence repeat(More)
As VLSI technology scales toward $65nm$ and beyond, both timing and power performance of integrated circuits are increasingly affected by process variations. In practice, people often treat systematic components of the variations, which are generally traceable according to process models, in the same way as random variations in process corner based(More)
Peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) is one of the most important model fruits in the Rosaceae family. Native to the west of China, where peach has been domesticated for more than 4,000 years, its cultivation spread from China to Persia, Mediterranean countries and to America. Chinese peach has had a major impact on international peach breeding programs due(More)
Recently, many studies utilizing next generation sequencing have investigated plant evolution and domestication in annual crops. Peach, Prunus persica, is a typical perennial fruit crop that has ornamental and edible varieties. Unlike other fruit crops, cultivated peach includes a large number of phenotypes but few polymorphisms. In this study, we explore(More)
Obesity is associated with an increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome. It is of paramount importance to reduce obesity-associated cardiac dysfunction and impaired energy metabolism. In this study, the activation of the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) pathway by punicalagin (PU), a major ellagitannin in pomegranate was(More)
BACKGROUND Calibrating mammograms to produce a standardized breast density measurement for breast cancer risk analysis requires an accurate spatial measure of the compressed breast thickness. Thickness inaccuracies due to the nominal system readout value and compression paddle orientation induce unacceptable errors in the calibration. METHOD A thickness(More)
